The Department of Transportation and FAA announced that drone operators will be required to register with a national drone registration database. A task force will develop recommendations for the registration process by November 20. The registration requirement is aimed at protecting public safety and promoting accountability, but creates new privacy risks. EPIC sued the FAA to develop privacy regulations for commercial drones. In EPIC v. FAA, EPIC recently argued that the agency's failure to establish privacy rules for commercial drones is a violation of law and should be overturned.
